Wookiee Bodyguards by wraithdt Wookiee Bodyguards by wraithdt
Hi guys! This is a new set of 12 artworks I did for the new Star Wars Essential Reader's Companion. Although the dateline for this book was a lot tighter it nevertheless was an enjoyable and rewarding experience.

As with the last book I will be posting them in the order of sequence as it appears in the Reader's Companion. Enjoy!

A scene from the ever popular Thrawn Trilogy. I believe this is from the 1st book, Heir To The Empire. Chewie and Ralrra take Leia to safety after an attempted assassination on her life by Noghri commandos sent by Grand Admiral Thrawn.

Trying to depict wookiees climbing and hanging from giant tree branches was really tricky but I think I managed to pull it off. Turned out better than expected.

Wookies have always been the most awesome species in Star Wars.

Dude!  THIS trilogy is by far one of my faves!  It's where you first meet Mara Jade and is another nostalgic one for me.  SO COOL!  Wow you really do these well!

This scene was amazing in that book. It informed of what Kashyyk was like, and I was super disappointed when it showed up in the prequels and was rather lame. Your painting is wonderful!
